Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Yom Kippur Davened Kol Nidrei in Beis Knesset Yad Tamir, a chareidi shul on HaAri Street in the Rechavia area of Jerusalem. The shul is close to the official Prime Minister’s Residence, facilitating matters for security personnel and thereby minimizing the Chilul Yomtov surrounding security arrangements for him.

When the gabbaim were asked about accommodating the Prime Minister, they too had a number of requests towards minimizing Chilul Yomtov. These demands included that the tent used to block the public from seeing the Prime Minister exit and enter his vehicle remain in place until motzei Yom Kippur, and not to remove it following davening at night since Mr. Netanyahu did not return to that shul on Yom Kippur during the day.

Kikar Shabbos News explains the gabbai consulted with HaGaon HaRav Yosef Efrati to determine how the shul should act regarding the Prime Minister’s arrival for Kol Nidrei.
